    Six Steps To Building A Remarkable Workplace

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about the three elements of a clear and compelling business vision, and this week we're going to talk about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace.


    Nice segue, don't you think? It's the people that guide and propel the workplace, right?


    If it were only so easy. From this week's guest's experience opening a shop a month as part of her organization’s UK start-up, she found that 20% of strategies lead to 80% of retention and profit and none of them are vague platitudes like "be nice to your people." 


    No, they are all practical, immediately applicable, step-by-step processes, and we'll tackle all six tonight on the show.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace with this week’s guest: Mandy Johnson, best-selling business author, active speaker, advisor and executive educator.

    SwCA Episode 075: HR..: Harassment free workplace?! The easy way to create one?!

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-075-hr-heroes-hangout-series-harassment-free-workplace-the-easy-way-to-create-one.html


    SHOW NOTES: Our HR HEROES HANGOUT™ series is dedicated to the unsung heroes that ensure that organizations achieve and sustain maximum human capital competitive advantage! In this episode our topic is, “Harassment free workplace?! The easy way to create one?!”


    HR is a glamorous and exciting field (it really is) where every single aspect of an organization is addressed. It deals with money (compensation, promotions, benefits, etc.), power (promotions, etc.) and respect (the concept of being valued). 


    Is a workplace free from illegal harassment (in the USA based on gender, age over 40, race, color, religion, national origin, disability, veterans status, etc.) even possible? Is it a realistic goal for HR professionals, executives, managers and staff? Is harassment an issue in workplaces only in the USA? Or, is it a global issue (in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, etc.)? I address this international report in the show and encourage you to access it (http://www.jil.go.jp/english/reports/documents/jilpt-reports/no.12.pdf). We all deserve to be treated with respect in our workplaces no matter where we are on the planet!


    It is a reasonable (and I would argue) expected goal for our HR Heroes to ensure that everyone (from the most senior executive through the newest staff member, clients, customers, vendors, and members of the public) are free from harassment at their workplace. 


    How is the goal of a harassment free workplace easily obtained? What steps are taken? What is required by the organizational leadership? 


    Let’s explore what this issue actually is and how our HR Heroes will take action to provide all of their constituencies are treated with respect (and without harassment)!

    Workplace Affairs: The Good, Bad, and Ugly

    in Romance

    Hi Bedroom Playmates


    Most of us spend at least 8-12 hours a day, 5 days a week or more at work. We normally leave our spouses and develop friendships and sometimes intimate relationships with our co-workers. We spend more time with our coworkers during the week than we spend with our spouses (sad).


    Were you involved in a workplace affair? How did it start? How did it end? Have your partner or ex ever had a workplace affair? What was different about your partner that led you to notice the affair? Are there signs of a workplace affair? What if you and the coworker are single, does that make a difference? Is it acceptable to develop romantic relationships with your co-workers or your superiors? Have you ever slept with your boss? If so, did you do it for a promotion or did you receive any type of special treatment? What if your coworker/lover is sleeping with another co-worker? How do you handle that?


    Oh boy the joys of "office politics" lol I can't wait to discuss this! 


    Talk to you soon....

    CEO and Chief Storyteller, Richard Sheridan, has recently written a book called Joy, Inc. about how he created a joyful culture at Menlo Innovations. Menlo is a software design and development company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Last year, 2,197 people came from around the world to visit Menlo. They made the trek not to learn about technology, but to witness a radically different approach to workplace culture — one intentionally designed to produce joy.


    Joy, Inc. is for readers in any field who want tangible examples for a healthier, happier atmosphere at work—and the sustainable business results required for growth. Readers will come away with an inspirational blueprint for how to create a corporate culture centered on joy in their own workplace.


    Menlo has gone on to win the Alfred P. Sloan award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility for eight straight years and has earned five revenue awards from Inc. magazine. Rich spends the majority of his time sharing the Menlo Way through teaching classes, leading tours, speaking at conferences and mentoring entrepreneurs in the community and sharing joy!
